Alysena 28 is a prescribed birth control pill, with 21 “active” pills and 7 “inactive” pills. The “active” pills were the ones with chips, Health Canada said, which means they may contain less of the active drug ingredients.


The batch of pills that may be affected were DIN 02387883 and lot LF10133A; they expire in October 2019.

Health Canada is warning women who use the pills to check them before and after taking them out of their package.

If there are any unusual pills, return them to your pharmacy for a replacement.
